Another week in the life of GURPS

This week is named Carolina. The news:

• We released Pyramid #3/74: Wild West. You can read about it here.

• Nikki sent Matt Riggsby (wombattery) a preliminary PDF of his socially oriented (but not GURPS Social Engineering) supplement to review. Meanwhile, I worked on art approval for it.

• We continued to finalize the Discworld Roleplaying Game, by Phil Masters (phil_masters). At this point, we're just picking nits.

• PK (peekitty) turned in the final draft of his secret project.

• Peer reviews of manuscripts from Peter Dell'Orto (peterdellorto) and Elizabeth McCoy (archangelbeth) just about wrapped up, and a Phil Masters (phil_masters) draft rolled in to take their place.

• My ongoing writing effort grew by a few thousand words.

• I approved a small item for PK (peekitty) to write over the next little while.

• I updated the GURPS News. Among other things, it now points to revised versions of the GURPS formatting guide and GURPS WYSIWYG template.

And that's it for the week, the month, and the year. By the time you read this, I'll be on vacation. I return to work on Monday, January 5, 2015. My next update here will be on Friday, January 9, 2015 . . . but I've scheduled a couple of GURPS-related articles to run in the Daily Illuminator while I'm away, at least one of which contains hints of what to expect in 2015.

This week is named Kate. Just about everything that went on during it was important-but-incremental stuff behind the scenes rather than leaps and bounds on specific projects. However:

• We released GURPS Power-Ups 8: Limitations, by our own PK (peekitty). You can read all about it here.

• I reviewed the first draft of the latest GURPS Social Engineering item, by Bill Stoddard (whswhs).

Don't worry . . . all the projects mentioned in the past few weeks' reports are ticking along. They just didn't hit any milestones this week!

This week is named Earle. The news:

Pyramid #3/74 is on track for a timely release later this month.

• Proofreading on the Discworld Roleplaying Game, by Phil Masters (phil_masters), is done. I vetted the markups and Nikki is now applying them.

• I completed my edit of the latest item from Matt Riggsby (wombattery). I cannot give out specifics, but if GURPS City Stats and GURPS Social Engineering are up your alley, you should find this volume useful.

• The secret project that PK (peekitty) is working on passed its review and is now being revised into a final draft.

• Steven (waitingforgo) and I planned the next step for projects by Peter Dell'Orto (peterdellorto), Elizabeth McCoy (archangelbeth), and Phil Masters (phil_masters).

• I am presently reviewing the first draft of a GURPS Social Engineering follow-up by Bill Stoddard (whswhs).

• I just approved another GURPS Dungeon Fantasy volume by Matt Riggsby (wombattery). Writing has commenced.

This week is named Zahra. The news:

• We released Pyramid #3/73: Monster Hunters II. You can read about that here.

• The remaining interior art for the Discworld Roleplaying Game, by Phil Masters (phil_masters), was approved. Now we're sorting out the back cover.

• I am a third of the way through my edit of the latest item from Matt Riggsby (wombattery). Looking good!

• I reviewed the first draft of the most recent Transhuman Space supplement by Phil Masters (phil_masters).

• Writers reported progress on items in the GURPS Dungeon Fantasy and GURPS Social Engineering series.

Next week might not get an update, because I have to have (day) surgery. Wish me luck! I hope to be back with an update on December 5.

This week is named Hugo. It featured a lot of incremental progress rather than major milestones. Things that kept on keeping on included GURPS Power-Ups 8, by PK (peekitty); that Transhuman Space supplement by Phil Masters (phil_masters); the GURPS Dungeon Fantasy volume that Peter Dell'Orto (peterdellorto) has been working on; and PK's (peekitty) secret project.

Hm, did I say Transhuman Space supplement, singular? Make that two! Phil Masters (phil_masters) just turned in the first draft of another one.

• The latest writing project from PK (peekitty) entered peer review.
